"TOWN OF BEDROCK"



Ever wanted to sleep in a cave? Yunak Evleri, carved into a white stone cliff in the Cappadocia region of Turkey, will bring your Flintstones fantasies to life. The hotel, which opened in May, extends through six naturally cooled caves built in the sixth century. Eight years ago, Turkish entrepreneur Yusuf Gorurgoz began buying the residences. Some are at the base of the massive cliff; stone stairways lead several stories up to others with views of the town of Ürgüp and the tabletop mountains. The 17 rooms and suites have been transformed into exotic accommodations - stark modern Mediterrenean decor, handcrafted furniture, marble baths - that the former occupants would never recognize.
